Infliximab infusion is not yet FDA-approved for psoriasis but has been reported to be very effective for plaque psoriasis. We report 2 patients without a history of psoriasis who after administration of infliximab for their inflammatory bowel disease experienced new onset, biopsy confirmed psoriasis.
